“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” —Eleanor Roosevelt
Hello, I am a therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, and families who are grappling with behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal wellbeing. I recognize that making the decision to begin therapy can feel unnerving in terms of getting started, the commitment to treatment, and finding a good therapeutic fit.
What I Do
Prior to becoming a therapist, my clinical social work training has included public and charter elementary schools, the family shelter system, an out-patient substance clinic, and an out-patient trauma clinic. My training reflects work with diverse populations and a desire to support clients in achieving a better sense of self. These relational experiences have provided me with a multidimensional lens that has enlightened my insight into the challenges that many people face.
How I Help
My approach to therapy is collaborative, direct, and psychodynamic which simply means that together, we will explore your process of continued development of growth and personal resilience, self-discovery, healing, and the achievement of your goals. I aim to provide an interactive, reflective, and supportive environment.
More About Me
I received my graduate education at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, and am a NYS licensed psychotherapist trained in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TB-CBT). I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, being an intricate part of your therapeutic journey.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading autobiographies and novels; watching Bravo, British drama series, and sports; experiencing the arts such as the ballet, opera, theatre, and concerts; and I love to travel: Paris, Tel Aviv, and Cape Town are a few of my favorite cities. I am also an avid runner and volunteer.
